Metal By Numbers 8/13: The charts get (God)smacked around

Posted by on August 13, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. Ah, now that’s more like it. The debuts for this week are much greater in number (and more greatly anticipated) than last week. The top debut of the week isn’t all that surprising, but […]

Metal By Numbers 8/6: Theory of a dead week in sales

Posted by on August 6, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. For the past month or so, we’ve seen major releases from the biggest bands in metal from Mastodon to Overkill. So it’s only natural that we’d get an off-week where not only are there […]

Metal By Numbers 7/16: Judas Priest redeem record sales

Posted by on July 16, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. Retirement plans for metal bands (or really any kind of rock band) seem to involve the same thing: big final tour with possibly a final album, then at some point someone says “Well, we […]

Metal By Numbers 7/9: You can’t fight the Seether

Posted by on July 9, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. It’s a pretty slow week for metal debuts. Unlike last week, there aren’t any heavy albums landing in the top ten. Active rock band Seether have a pretty solid debut for themselves, but that’s almost […]

Metal By Numbers 7/2: Once more ’round the charts

Posted by on July 2, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. It’s a strange feeling when something so highly anticipated is finally in your hands. The new Mastodon album was being hyped before recording had officially begun, and if you’re at all like me you […]

Metal By Numbers 6/25: The fault in our Stars In Stereo

Posted by on June 25, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. I know absolutely nothing about The Fault In Our Stars apart from the fact that a) I incorporated its title into this week’s Metal By Numbers, and b) it’s apparently a big sobfest. But (presumably) no […]

New & Noteworthy, June 17th: Roads Untraveled

Posted by on June 17, 2014

We get a bit of a light release schedule this week, but the lead album comes from one of the biggest names in modern rock in the world. Although they may not be considered a metal band, Linkin Park started out their career playing some of the heaviest music that the mainstream world was willing […]

Even If It Wasn’t A Slow News Day, We’d Be Psyched For New Coliseum

Posted by on January 18, 2013

While we’ve dug Coliseum for a while now, their last full length, 2010’s House With a Curse knocked it out of the park. It hit our sweet spot of heaviness and Amphetamine Reptile-inspired really loud indie rock. The Louisville trio will be releasing their fourth full length, Sister Faith, on Temporary Residence on April 30. The album […]

Headbangers Brawl 3/9: What’s The Best Metal Trio?

Posted by on March 9, 2012

Headbangers’ Brawl is a weekly column where Metal Insider’s contributors take a moment to debate and analyze two opposing sides of a topical issue occurring in the world of metal and/or the music industry. Motörhead was confirmed for Mayhem Fest (though we didn’t need any press release to tell us that). Rush sent a cease-and-desist order to some […]
